Natasha, our English fairy

We brought Natasha into our family while living in the UK. She is the most petite cat I have ever owned, weighing in at barely 5 pounds- and I promise, she's completely healthy! She's just the most dainty, tiny thing. Part of this is due to her having been the runt of her litter, though, so don't think that this is breed- specific; she's just a little on the light side for her breed.

Natasha is very aloof and likes to have her own space; she is without question the queen of the house and maintains order over all of the animals, canine and feline. She has the quiet dignity that older cats seem to develop, but will still play with us on occasion; she likes to lay on her back and let us rub her belly, and will occasionally still wrestle a little, although I think she's getting a wee bit old for that lately. Still, she does have a playful side; it just isn't as pronounced as I've seen in some other cats. She's a more "cat- like" cat, which is nice.

Natasha rarely speaks, but does like to sleep in our laps or near us when the house is quiet. She doesn't care for our dogs, but never fights with them--- she just tends to keep out of rooms while the dogs are there. She's still active, and will climb her cat tree, and loves to play with the laser toy, even at thirteen!

We would definitely, absolutely get another British Shorthair. I love having Natasha in our life!
